Valpo Parks Foundation Evergreen Society

Preserving, Protecting, Promoting
The Evergreen Society was established to ensure our parks are preserved and protected for years to come so that they will continue to be an integral part of our vibrant community. By including Vaparaiso Parks Foundation in your will, estate plan or by making a gift in your lifetime, you are leaving a legacy that will touch others for generations to come.

Parks with Purpose
Parks in Valparaiso are designed to help us all, by creating a healthy, natural environment for individuals of all ages and abilities. To preserve our parks, we improve the quality of our lives and lives of those who will succeed us. Our parks will outlive us, yet membership in the EverGreen Society will keep memories of the past alive and vital.

Membership with Meaning
Those who have become members of the EverGreen Society believe in and trust the Valparaiso Parks Foundation, and are confident their donation will continue to support a high quality parks system. Valparaiso has built a solid history of generosity, and membership in the EverGreen Society provides you with one more way to make a difference in our community.

EverGreen Society funds are permanently endowed from which only the earnings will be spent. The endowment fund is entirely separate from city control and provides a permanent vehicle to support the Valparaiso Parks system.

NEW for 2017
